Row the Indian Ocean 2017

In June 2017, a crew of 4 British rowers will set off from the shores of Western Australia to row across the Indian ocean in the hopes of adding their names to the elite list of adventurers that have successfully completed this voyage.

The challenge is not an easy one. They will be following a route that will see them cover approximately 3,600 miles over a period of anything between 65 and 85 days.

The crew, Robin Buttery, Billy Taylor, James Plumley and Barry Hayes are aiming to raise awareness of Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease (YOPD), of the struggle and difficulties that people living with Parkinson’s face on a day to day basis.

Robin was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease in June 2015 just before his 44th birthday.
Robin and the crew hope to show a positive image for people living with Parkinson’s disease, and especially to those struggling to come to terms with a recent diagnosis.

Supporting this event is The CLEAR Trust http://cleartrust.org.uk .

The CLEAR trust enables children and adults suffering neuro-developmental and co-ordination difficulties, brain injury, spinal damage or long-term neurological disorders to participate in physical exercise and rehabilitation programmes.

The funds raised will be divided between The Clear Trust, Spotlight YOPD http://spotlightyopd.org and The Cure Parkinson’s Trust https://www.cureparkinsons.org.uk
